Period & Style
IMA TV chats with Sarah Green while installing Atelier van Lieshout's Funky Bone Benches in the 100 Acres Art and Nature Park at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Joep van Lieshout, with his studio Atelier van Lieshout, will present a group of 20 benches with drawings of large bones that will together form the shape of an enormous, stylized human skeleton. The work grows out of ideas about native heritage and cultural development, with bones iconically referring to artifacts and remains from previous occupants. The artist, who encountered visitors sitting on rocks and other natural perches on his visit to Indianapolis, wanted to create benches as sites for resting in 100 Acres.
